Upcoming Events & Workshops
Events are a huge part of House of Books & Friends and everything we stand for. We want to meet as many of you as possible and most importantly help you meet each other. Whether that’s in person or virtually and in a personal or business context, our aim is to connect people and create a shared and valuable experience.
With this in mind we are creating an exciting events programme for you as we speak. We will have regular features such as children’s storytime and meet the author plus special one time only occasions.
Here’s an idea of what to expect:
- Meet the author
- Book clubs
- Creative writing
- Talks with charity partners
Got an idea for an event? Please just get in touch with one of our friendly Bookworms!
We have had an amazing amount of interest in our events space and programme, and our team is currently working their way through each request. If you have got in touch with us, please bear with us, we haven’t forgotten and will respond soon.
